The Best Time of the Year

This is a card that I uploaded on the DRS Designs blog last week and forgot to upload it here. I just love the Cutie Pie kids! They're adorable! I think Cutie Pie Christmas Helpers image is my favorite of the newly released images because my favorite Christmas memories as a child are of decorating the Christmas tree.

The Simple Joys of Christmas greeting is the first part of a larger greeting. The remainder of the greeting is stamped inside the card and reads, "warm your heart, fill your home, and last a lifetime."

I used Copic markers to color the image. The faux stitching was made using a paper piercer, template, and a ballet blue marker. The edge punch is actually a corner punch. It's actually very easy to line up! Then to finish it off, I added some red gingham ribbon.
